National Academies on Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Wildland Fires

National Academies on Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Wildland Fires

 

The National Academies Board on Atmospheric Sciences and Climate presents a workshop about “Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Wildland Fires,” from September 13th to September 15th, 2023. The workshop focuses on our current understanding of wildland fire greenhouse gas (GHG) emission changes, and the subsequent effect on our ability to achieve net-zero GHG emissions targets. Further, the workshop identifies numerous opportunities to improve measurements and model emissions, advance understanding, and inform management to minimize wildland fire emissions. During the event on wildland fires, attendees address best management practices to include in current and future action plans.

About the Board on Atmospheric Sciences and Climate

The issues addressed by BASC are at the forefront of contemporary concerns. Climate change and impacts, global climate models and the implications of their results, air pollution, and severe weather are topics discussed not just by scientists, but in Congress and in headlines every day. Our understanding of these issues directly affects the nation’s environmental policies, energy choices, manufacturing decisions, construction codes, and agricultural methods. In addition, there are implications for human health and emergency management.

About ClimaTwin®

ClimaTwin® is a leading climate risk intelligence solution for infrastructure assets and the built environment.

We empower infrastructure stakeholders to mitigate climate risks and assess adaptation actions across the total asset lifecycle. By connecting complex climate models and infrastructure digital twins, our solution enables engineers, owner-operators, and governments to aggregate, visualize, and analyze disparate datasets, revealing site-specific insights at a hyper-local scale. Benefits include 5-10x near-term returns and lifetime cost-avoidance by mitigating risks to systems, services, and societies.

The American Meteorological Society: Impacts of Climate Change on Wildfire & Drought

The American Meteorological Society: Impacts of Climate Change on Wildfire & Drought

The American Meteorological Society (AMS) presents a new webinar entitled “Impacts of Climate Change on Western Fires and Drought.” Numerous scientific studies warn that climate change is a critical cause for the increasing intensity of wildfire and drought in recent years.

During the AMS webinar, Dr. Andrew Schwartz, lead scientist and station manager at the University of California, Berkeley Central Sierra Snow Laboratory, explains how an increasingly warming climate is leading to the deadly and destructive natural disasters of wildfire and drought throughout California and other regions.

The University of California, Berkeley Central Sierra Snow Laboratory (CSSL) or “Central Sierra Snow Lab” is a research field station specializing in snow physics, snow hydrology, meteorology, climatology, and instrument design. CSSL features one of the best instrumented snow study sites in the world.

AMS Mission: “The American Meteorological Society advances the atmospheric and related sciences, technologies, applications, and services for the benefit of society.” For more information about other webinars hosted by the American Meteorological Society, please contact webinars@ametsoc.org.

Climate Conversations on Severe Wildfire, Human Health and The Built Environment

On August 25, 2022, the National Academy of Sciences hosts “Climate Conversations: Wildfire,” to discuss how to protect human health and the built environment in the face of more frequent and severe wildfires in the U.S.

Climate change is increasing the frequency, severity, and extent of areas burned by wildfires across the U.S., endangering the health, safety, and welfare of our communities to fire, smoke, and debris, which can travel thousands of miles.

During the online event, A.R. “Ravi” Ravishankara (Colorado State University) moderates a conversation between Sarah Coefield (Missoula City-County Health Department) and Erica Fischer (Oregon State University).

The subject matter experts discuss how city planners and decision makers confront the challenges of more frequent and severe wildfires, and protect the built environment and human health today and in the future.

@theNASEM hosts A.R. “Ravi” Ravishankara (@CSUAtmosSci), Sarah Coefield (@MissoulaCounty), and @Erica_Fischer (@EngineeringOSU) for #ClimateConversations: Wildfire
